Joey Kovar

Powered by imdb

Joseph Eugene Kovar, aka "Joey Kovar", is a very courageous, optimistic and positive man. Joey Kovar is a very well-known young talented Chicago actor, model and wrestler, who is extremely popular with today's youth. Joey made his first debut on MTV's The Real World Hollywood and moved on to VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, putting up the ratings, stealing the limelight and spotlight from everyone on the show that stood beside him.. What most don't know is that, as a child, young Joey was mentally and physically abused by his mother. He was introduced, at a very young age, to drugs and alcohol by his own mother and father. His father, an alcoholic, and his mother, a user of cocaine, were bad influences and unfit parents for young Joey Kovar. Joey, at the time raised by these unfit guardians, grew up thinking that alcohol and drugs were acceptable in a household. It was inevitable that Joey Kovar's past would lead him later to a path he never wanted to take. Now, Joey Kovar, himself, who grew up with all the odds against him, is a survivor of drugs and alcohol abuse, still fighting his urges today, because he has a dream of becoming "The Next Generation Action-Star".  See full bio on IMDb »
